New Delhi: Exceptional cell for Nirav Modi, With a UK court deciding for removal of criminal jewel trader Nirav Modi, needed in India on charges of extortion and tax evasion in Punjab National Bank (PNB) trick case, Mumbai’s Arthur Road prison has kept an exceptional cell prepared to stop him, an authority said on Friday.
The prison official said that once Nirav Modi is brought to Mumbai, he will be kept in one of the three cells of garrison huts number 12, which is a high-security military quarter.
“Arrangements for housing Nirav Modi in the prison have been finished and the jail cell is prepared for him, at whatever point he is removed,” he said.
In a thorough removal win for the Indian specialists, a UK judge decided on Thursday that criminal jewel shipper Nirav Modi not just has a case to reply in the Indian courts yet that there is no proof to propose he would not get a reasonable preliminary in India. Modi lost his almost
two-year-long fight in court against removal on all grounds.
The 49-year-old goldsmith has been over and over denied bail because of the reality of the claims against him and stays in a correctional facility in a London jail since his capture in March 2019.
The Maharashtra penitentiaries division had in 2019 imparted data to the Center about the situation with the jail and offices for housing Nirav Modi.
The Center had looked for data about it from the state home office as removal procedures for Nirav Modi had then progressed under the watchful eye of the Westminster Magistrates Court in the UK, the authority said.
The state government had presented a letter of affirmation to the Center about the offices, which they can give inside the jail.
